|KBSA Configuration Overview
When you open the link for Reporting, you see a page with four tabs across the top. When you click the second tab on the Reporting page, you are presented with a view of a chart and a data sheet view at the bottom of the page showing a summary report of articles by article type.
This data view displays a summary list of article types as well as the number of articles and average user rating for that article type.
You can modify the web part so that the chart with all of your article types has a color corresponding to it; the plain chart becomes a bit more colorful to look at than the default.
To select colors for the chart, you can choose to use either the Skin for the chart or customize the colors. Edit the Web Part to open the tool pane where you can configure the article type color options.
You can select a pre-formatted color scheme by simply selecting a skin.
Several skins are embedded into the web part and all you do is pick a skin and the chart changes color.
For example, choosing Red will give you a group of colors in the red family.
To select your own colors for each article type, in the tool pane, click the button Choose colors for the chart. In SharePoint 2013, the button reads “Edit colors.”
